Dezeen has announced the 235 projects longlisted for this year's Dezeen Awards in the architecture categories, including buildings by Santiago Calatrava, Renzo Piano and MAD Architects.

The 235 longlisted projects, which are in the running for awards in the 13 different architecture project categories, were made by studios located across 36 different countries including Mexico, Japan, Iran, Vietnam, Tanzania and Portugal.

The top seven project city locations are London, with 30 longlisted entries, followed by Shenzhen, Mexico City, Melbourne, Beijing and Amsterdam tied with three each.

Amongst the longlisted buildings this year are an art museum on Karaköy waterfront in Istanbul, a retrofitted brick water tower in Utrecht and six brick-clad townhouses that replaced an old petrol station in London.

Other longlisted projects include an abandoned wooden home with 3D printed walls in China, a rammed-earth community arts space in Kampala and a children's play pavilion with air-purifying bioreactors in Poland.

Dezeen Awards 2023, in partnership with Bentley Motors, will reveal all longlisted projects this week. The interiors longlist will be announced tomorrow, followed by the design longlist on Wednesday and the sustainability longlist on Thursday.

The next stage of Dezeen Awards 2023 will see all longlisted projects assessed by our international jury of leading professionals including architects Farshid Moussavi, Thom Mayne, Lara Lesmes and Omar Gandhi.

The judges will determine the projects that feature on the shortlists, which will be announced in October. A further round of judging by our master jury will determine the winners, which will be announced in November.
